PS3 headset alternatives?

3 replies 1708 views Edited Oct 10, 2013

Looking for something to communicate that doesn't involve having to wear a headset.  I'm fine with volume from the TV, just hoping to use a microphone that doesn't involve wearing anything.  I have a Galaxy S3 so that would be the most preferable to use if someone knows how to connect it for that purpose.  Otherwise just looking for the cheapest alternative as I'd rather not spend $60+ on a speakerphone.

 

Thanks for any help.

You would also need to buy any 3.5mm microphone. A phone cannot be used.

He needs your USB converter, one of these:

One of these:

and two of these, so both are near him:

http://www.amazon.com/Stereo-Headphone-Extension-feet-3-5mm/dp/B001423GZO/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=138...

 

All in all, that's about $35, give or take, plus you can use those components with any PC or MAc, as well as your phone.

The PS Eye for the PS3 can also serve as a mic, though I would recommend a headset (yes, I know you want something besides a headset) more than that since it limits echos from the speakers.
